“When wealth is passed off as merit, bad luck is seen as bad character. This is how ideologues justify punishing the sick and the poor. But poverty is neither a crime nor a character flaw. Stigmatise those who let people die, not those who struggle to live.”
Sarah Kendzior

“The surest way to keep a problem from being solved is to deny that problem exists. Telling people not to complain is a way of keeping social issues from being addressed. It trivializes the grievances of the vulnerable, making the burdened feel like burdens. Telling people not to complain is an act of power, a way of asserting that one's position is more important than another one's pain. People who say "stop complaining" always have the right to stop listening. But those who complain have often been denied the right to speak.”
Sarah Kendzior, The View From Flyover Country: Essays by Sarah Kendzior

“Gentrifiers focus on aesthetics, not people. Because people, to them, are aesthetics.”
Sarah Kendzior, The View From Flyover Country: Essays by Sarah Kendzior
